In 1984 when Paul Schockemohle re-imported the then ten-year-old Holsteiner Sandro from Denmark, he wasn't counting on the fact that he had brought back the founder of a dresssage breeding line to Germany. Sandro was one of the only sons of the highly competitive Holsteiner Thoroughbred Sacramento Song xx, a rarity on the German horse scene but very convincing in the show jumping sport. His qualification to breed was acquired under Franke Sloothaak, through successes in the highest level of show jumping. Almost exclusively the pure bred dark stallion was put into Schockemohle's breeding program to refine the existing jumping stock. He produced a whole line of approved sons before moving on to the Kathmann Holtrup station and the Stud Wiechenhof where a wider opportunity was opened to the breeders. After many attempts in pairing up Sandro and Gephard, besides Silvio I and Silvio II, the 1988 Sandro Song emerged.

The success of this pinto stallion was no accident. His sire was one of the KWPN's influential English bred foundation thoroughbred stallion Pericles xx where he stood at West Grinstead Stud until 1968 but later exported to the Netherlands from 1976 until his death in 1987. He was one of very few Thoroughbreds like Lucky Boy to achieve Preferent status and sired over 2600 progeny. Pericles xx did some racing and competed in Open Jumpers later in his career. His offspring made excellent sport horses and proved themselves in the breeding shed as well. Pericles was best known as being a dressage sire. He sired 12 approved KWPN stallions including Samber and is also the maternal grandsire of the legendary stallion Ulft. His dam Tina D was a remarkable ster pref prest mare who produced 19 foals, a number of which obtained Ster, Keur and Prestatie status.
In sport Samber was successful in both disciplines; he showjumped up to 1.30m and competed with good results in Advanced dressage.
